Masking with Make-up

I want to have a look at how make-up can affect the way we behave -people usually feel more confident when wearing make-up and some people even get obsessed with having to wear it. 
Wearing make-up is seen as something that enhances and makes people look more 'beautiful' and the wearer then has a boosted confidence about the way they act. I have tried to portray make-up in these photos as a mask holding the person back as the poses start off very rigid and forced and then become more relaxed as the make-up is taken off revealing a make-up less face.

Unfortunately I have been really silly and left my camera charger in Falmouth so had to use my olympus for these which isn't the best quality!
